Good morning! I meant to do this post yesterday, but it ended up being the day from HELL. I waited for a call on a job interview (because why not add a fourth job to my list of jobs, right?) that never came; I got an email from Andraia's social studies teacher that she had received a detention but skipped out on it; the girls called me on their walk home from school from a friend's house to ask if they could hang out there (NO); I almost completely forgot about Andraia's eye doctor appointment, and when I remembered, we were stuck in traffic due to road construction, making us super late; Patryk decided to have an accident right in the middle of the eye doctor's office, and then proceeded to have meltdown after meltdown, forcing me to take him in and out of the waiting room, five times in all, to spare the folks there from his screams and whining; we didn't return home until after 6:30, making dinner a bit late and bedtimes delayed. Needless to say it was early to bed for me, as I felt like I had been hit by a truck when the day was over.
So...I've been in the craft area a couple of days this week (and plan to be there again today, maybe it can bring me to a happy place!) and made a bunch of good stuff. I got the best of it on camera, and thought you'd like to see what I've been up to. I decided it was time to use up this great paper I have in a box, my great hoarded stash...when I receive my next Scraptastic kit next month, the box is going to burst!
For this layout of the girls who are...actually...displaying...affection...*gasp*...I pulled out some old Fancy Pants Love Birds. After misting the background with Dragonfruit Maya Mist, I went to town adding paper scraps and embellies from the collection.
Calliope's Attic. Check this shop out for your charm needs, she has so much great stuff! the journal spot features some great MME Be Happy twine as well. The title is done with Simple Stories Fabulous alpha.
Scraptastic Barn Door kit except for crochet trim.
Studio Calico chevron mask with yellow Glimmer Mist. A Crafter's Companion Stamp It! Australia - Overlapped Text stamp (which I LOVE). Random die cuts and a journal card from my stash. MME Lime Twist alpha. Quote is from an SEI die cut collection. Random overlay with Scenic Route alpha underneath. Tree cut from a Cricut cart owned by a friend (can't remember which one.) Mix of MME washi tape and SMASH* tape.
